The visualization process

Step by step – the visualization process

01 Raw data

At the beginning of the visualization process there is an abstract, unmanageable amount of numbers – the data. Not all information can always be represented graphically. This is why scientists determine what is important to answer a question. This means that the data is filtered so that only those parts relevant to the analysis are visualized.

02 Mapping

For the filtered data it is now defined how they are graphically displayed. For example, atoms are usually visualized as spheres.

03 Rendering

The graphical representation of the previously selected representations is calculated. In addition, the angle from which the data is to be displayed is determined.

04 Finale Visualisierung

The result is a three-dimensional, interactive image that can be used to analyze the information selected in the first step.
